Keelor/Cuddy

Blue Rodeo

"I hear you talking everywhere
Words on the loudspeakers
Hanging in the air
Everywhere

And I remember the words
You told me too
This town's full of losers
Trying to get a piece of you
You really think that's true

How long will it take
Til you open up your eyes
I've been gone for years
You never even realised

How long How long
How long How long

In a corner of the world on election day
You watched your star shatter
Then fade away
Too many wasted days

With your eyes wide open a hand on the wheel
You looked back hard trying to
Remember just how it feels
How does it feel

How long will it take
Til you open up your eyes
I've been gone for years
You never even realised

How long How long
How long How long

What does it take
To let you know
It's all coming down
Don't waste my time

Solo

You used to walk down the street
Like the chosen one
Everybody got your blessing
Now they're gone
Where have they gone

Did I ever tell you what I thought
Of what you did for me
Some things cost too much
Even when they're free
Even when they're free

How long will it take
Til you open up your eyes
I've been gone for years
You never even realised

How long How long
How long How long"
